ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE STARTING ANY REPAIRS
Your problem sounds like drum rollers have flat spots on them or in need of lubrication, or maybe your drum belt has slipped off of the idler arm pulley.

.
Be sure to note the route of the belt, this will come in handy when you go to reinstall the belt.
Check your drum rollers for flat spots or wear, if they have flat spots or wear on them replace them.
If the drum rollers don't have flat spots or wear on them then they probably only need lubrication. Lubricate the shaft of the rollers with a good grade of machine oil such as 3 in One oil. Reassemble the dryer, plug back in. This should solve your noise problem.

Load noice when drying


The squeaking is likely coming from the drum rollers and the grinding is likely coming from the drum rubbing against the door frame. This can be caused by a badly worn roller or damaged felt slide. A repairable condition that should be considered before throwing out your dryer. You can obtain a kit for this at your local appliance parts store or order on line. If you or know of someone that is pretty handy, you can install the kit, and a new felt slide for less than 1/3 the cost of replacing your dryer. Remember to inspect the drive belt to ensure that it is not torn or about to break.

There is a squealing noice as the the drum turns. It does'nt make the noice all the time but at least 3/4 of the time. It seems to get louder the longer the dryer runs.

Your problem sounds like drum rollers have flat spots on them or in need of lubrication
If you have a front loading machine,

Remove the electrical console that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer.
Be REAL CAREFUL not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch. Then remove the top of the dryer.
Remove the front of the dryer. This will expose the drum and belt. Remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm pulley and motor.
Now is a good time to check the belt to see if it has slipped off of the idler arm pulley and also check the belt condition for wear.
Be sure to note the route of the belt, this will come in handy when you go to reinstall the belt.
Check your rollers for flat spots, if they have flat spots on them replace them.
If the rollers don't have flat spots on them then they probably only need lubrication. Lubricate the shaft of the rollers with a good grade of machine oil such as 3 in One oil. Reassemble the dryer, plug back in. This should solve your noise problem.

Whirlpool Dryer- Model #YLEQ5000PW0, does not get hot enough to dry clothes and makes a ckicking noice when the drum rotates. What do you think the problem is?


if you have any heat than your element is good,the reason it take's so long to dry the clothe's is due to a blockage,first you nead to look behind the dryer with out moving it to see if the vent hose is pinched off,next try running the dryer with out the vent hose hooked up,if it dry's well than you have a blockage some were between were the vent hose hook's up to the dryer and vent outside.you nead to check the roller's for the clicking noice.

Loud noise from dryer


Good Afternoon,
If a toothbrush went into the dryer it would have to remain in the drum. There are no outlets large enough for a toothbrush to fit through. Can you tell where the noise is coming from? Also, check the drum good, the toothbrush could be hiding behind one of the ears in the drum and you probably can't see it. Try running your hand behind the ears inside the drum, it just might be there! I hope this will help you and thank you for using FixYa!

Maytag dryer making clanking noise


I had this problem and the cause was a loose screw holding on one of the "paddles" inside the drum. I removed the door, front panel, lifted the top, manually rotated the drum until I saw the screw head which had worked loose and was slapping the side of the dryer. A quick tighten of the screw and the noise was gone.
